That's a rare one. Every Granada that came through the dealers I worked for had an 8". I only heard rumors of a Granada 9".

I think the rear was originally in a 77 Bronco, and someone put Grenada calipers on it if we deciphered the tag correctly. The story I got was that it came out of a 240 built by a company who did 5.0 conversions. It sat in the sellers parts yard for years and no one there really knew anything else about it. The p/n on the caliper lead back to a Grenada, but they could possibly fit something else as well, it was just a quick search out of mild curiosity since they were getting scrapped anyway.

I doubled my investment yesterday with an order to Jegs for the Ford racing carbon fiber clutch disk kit and a new driveshaft u-joint yoke that I didn't feel like going back to the j/y for. I'm gonna start cutting off Ford brackets maybe this evening or tomorrow after work, will drag the 1030 out this weekend to start bracket swap over.

What kind of limited slip do you find in 8.8?

Hey I sent you a PM about those brackets.

I talked to the guy on Facebook, his TAB mounts come with poly bushings pre-installed. He said most of the people who buy his stuff are north of 600hp. I have the Ben's spherical bearings so I didn't go that route. I do have the benefit of a plasma cutter to use at work that I scabbed the Volvo mounts off with. I just finished everything last night when I welded on a couple little tabs for the Ford brake hoses. Some Bricker posted a YouTube that I used for a guide. He cut off the anti rotational nub that keeps the brake hose from unscrewing off the Ford calipers, I didn't think this was a good idea so I left them and looped the hoses around. It doesn't look super but I think it's more secure. The LSD is great, it was raining yesterday and I changed lanes in 2nd and just sort of slipped the whole car sideways when both tires broke loose like it had rear wheel steering. Feels similar to a weldy when when both tires light up. It also drives out of corners hard, much less drama than the G80.
